This is me

27 Mar '07 3:19 pm
Hello everyone,
Originally a Cantabrian I grew up in the garden city of Christchurch. Have moved several times around New Zealand since then and am now a resident of sunny Nelson.
Two and a half years ago we had a new section to knock into shape and develop a planting scheme. We have planted the trees and shrubs which will give the garden its basic bones, have perennials, roses,bulbs and annuals for changing interest. So exciting to have a new garden and plant just exactly what one wants instead of woring around the previous owners choices.
Will try and post some ppics to show the progress.

Bumbling around on the Forum

Dear Teejay, don't worry about a little bumbling around at first. We all have done it. If you want proof, go to my first posts on the Gardens Through the Seasons post in the My Plants and Gardens section. You will see my first tentative tries at posting pictures.

Don't give up, you will get it very quickly if you follow Dixie's advice.

Thanks for your posts.. I originally followed eggy's info but could not find it again yesterday!!!
Here's hoping all will go well with this post. We had to decide whether to just leave the front section sloping down to the footpath or terrace it. We went for the second option.

The back section

There was a massive pile of dirt here which had been excavated for the foundation of the house. Luckily the man landscaping the next door house needed soil for another section so he came in and scooped it all away.

Starting to look a little better. it was so good to get rid of the mud out there. Our dog had to have her paws cleaned whenever she came inside.

Hard working Teejay

You have accomplished so much Teejay. I can hardly recognize the garden in the second picture as the results of the first picture. Great job!

BTW, you can post more than one picture at a time if you just wait patiently while the attachment loads. Once it is complete, the Browse box will clear and you can browse for the next photo. Just keep doing this until you have all your photos loaded. You will see all the attachments in a string below the Browse box. They will be posted in the order you loaded them, even though they will appear from last to first in the draft.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Faith, so nice to hear from you. That is a cut little bird in your hard, is it a hummingbird? Thanks for the tip on posting photos I will give it a try.
